Charting Basal Temp through Peri

Hello .. I am new to this health board but would like to jump in and see if anyone here is charting their basal temperatures through perimenopause.

I skipped my first period October of 2010 and it's been quite an interesting adventure into perimenopause since.

Since then, I've had long and short cycles. Heavy bleeding, spotting, hot flashes, cold flashes.. the list goes on.

I am currently on cycle day 212, it's the longest I've gone so far.

I'm looking for new lady friends to share this journey with, learn from you and whine to you when it all gets to me. :-)

Nice meeting you all !

Re: Charting Basal Temp through Peri

I started doing BBT and symptom charting a year ago on Fertility Friend, and I am thrilled to see someone else does it! I wanted to make sense of my symptoms, especially the weird bleeding/spotting which seems to happen after my period when I am going to have a long or anovulatory cycle. I have discovered that where other women just skip cycles, I seem to have a period that drags on with spotting during the prolonged cycles. 2-3 days before ovulation (whether that occurs at a normal interval or way late), my bleeding stops (and mucus appears)- so I believe it is because my estrogen may actually be low at this time so I don't "heal" the way I do in my normal cycles. My pattern seems to be to have a really long messy cycle that can go up to 66 days, then I could have months of normal periods with no spotting so long as I ovulate. Then crazy again. I try to reassure myself by using my charts to remind myself that this has happened before - but I can't wait to say good-bye to the unpredictable bleeding and the anxiety. Thanks for posting - my friends think I am an obsessive loon for tracking this stuff, but it helps me to feel less out of control. I'd love to share the journey.
